Adrian was a helpful and expert guide from booking to the end of our one day Ducati tour. We had a great time and the memories are priceless. Thank you so much!

Adrian went above and beyond! Responsive before the tour, tailored the tour for us, magical route, great hospitality at the (included!) stops, and kept the group together in Italian traffic skillfully. I can’t imagine anything else he could have done better!

Excellent time with Adrian on two day Tuscany tour enjoying riding the Ducati Multistrada 1260 through many kilometers of Tuscany. Ducati factory tour was very interesting as well. I would highly recommend as much time as you can spend in the area with Adrian as your guide. Trips are informative, safe and beautiful.

Amazing experience, my wife got me the ducati experience as a surprise for my 40th and I can honestly say I will never forget it. Adrian is an absolute gentleman who goes far over and above for his customers and done a great job keeping our group of 4 bikes (including him) together. The day itself consists of unbelievable riding through Tuscany before stopping after around 50kms for a coffee at a really cool biker cafe in the hills, before heading another 50kms to bologna where we stopped at the scrambler cafe for some lunch before going to the ducti factory for the tour then museum. If you are considering this then I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic experience! Riding a Ducati through the hills of Tuscany is an experience not to be missed. Our route was a favorite of the locals on a Sunday morning, and included a stop for coffee at the top of the pass. The roads are outstanding and your guide, Adrian, is tremendously knowledgable and helpful in getting you into the mindset of driving a motorcycle like an Italian. I hope to ride with them again soon……

My father and I did the 1 day tour to the Ducati factory and museum with Adrian of Tuscany Motorcycle Tours. It was and awesome experience and highly recommend. Coming from Canada it was a bucket list item to ride a Ducati through the Italian country side and this did not disappoint! We rented a pair of Ducati Multistrada V4 1160. The tour had a total of 7 people over 5 bikes (2 couples riding 2 up). We started in Florence, rode out of the city, including lane splitting to get the real Italian experience. Rode the famous Futa Pass – incredible twisty motorcycle road. We stopped for coffee at a cafe popular with all the local riders. Amazing view! Rode on to Bologna through some more twisties and small villages with incredible views. Had local Italian lunch. Quick ride over to Borgo Panigale to the Ducati dealership for a bit of shopping. We then walked down the street to the factory. The tour was guided and you got to see the full assembly process. No photos allowed. The museum is small but has a number of important bikes on display right up to the most recent winning MotoGP and WSBK bikes. Very cool to check out up close. The ride back was an hour on the autostrada (highway). The day started at 9am and returned at 6:30. We were offered beer and water at the end of the ride. The starting point was a 20-25min cab ride from our air bnb in old town Florence. If you’re considering a tour with Tuscany motorcycle tours do it! Adrian is a great guy, speaks English very well along with French, Spanish and Italian. The bikes were in great shape and worked flawlessly. We brought our own riding gear but gear rental is also available.

My son and I had planned a tour with Adrian in 2020. Covid prevented our tour and Adrian was kind enough to keep our reservation until we could attend. We coordinated our one day ride for Sept 12/2023. We each rode a Ducati Multistrada that was prepared and ready to ride upon arrival. Our group had Adrian as our guide with 5 other bikes. Joining us were riders from New Zealand, Chile and the United States. With our Canadian citizenship it was truly and international affair. The first part of the ride was through the city streets of Florence and then onto the famous Futa Pass (a beautiful mountain road). A coffee stop at the famous motorcycle cafe was epic. We rode to a lunch stop at a local restaurant in Bologna and had a wonderful meal. It was so much fun to ride the roads with no concern for directions or gps. Following Adrian was a blast. Adrian ensured everyone had a nice lunch and then it was a short 5 min ride to the Ducati store. A short walk from the store was the Ducati Factory where Adrian had arranged our passes for a guided tour. It was a very informative tour and at the end we witnessed the dyno test of a Hyper Motard, fresh off the assembly line….very cool. We then suited up and rode the autostrada back to the shop in Florence. Our day began at 0900 and ended at 1830. A complete motorcycle experience in Italy. I would highly recommend Tuscany Motorcycle Adventures to anyone wishing to ride a motorcycle on the beautiful twisty roads of Italy. Adrian has many options to choose from and is always quick to answer any questions you may have via e mail. We are already planning another ride with Adrian in the future…Thanks to Adrian and his team for making this a truly memorable experience

Thank you for such a nice and detailed review Tim!

Executive summary: If you’re an experienced motorcycle rider wanting an amazing day trip in Italy, this is the tour. Adrian (leader), Filippo (second guide), and Luciano (coordinator) were all friendly and treated me as a top customer. These guys love motorcycles and racing where their passion comes to life during the tour.

The trip is a ride through highways and mountainous/country roads where there are many 1-hour intervals. The lunch near the Ducati museum was fantastic as well. During the museum tour, Adrian and Filippo were knowledgeable about all the bikes and explained the engineering. My wife who rode with me loved the experience, views, and made new friends! Last, the most important aspect of the tour that I loved was the importance of safety. The guides do a great job ensuring busy roundabouts were blocked and if the group splits, there would be coordination of two groups. Thank you Tuscany Motorcycle Tours for making a dream come true!
